Many people are becoming increasingly aware of the intimate connection between the environmental crisis and humanity’s detachment from the land. Many are perceiving the profound link between the (un)health of the land and the inner disorder of our Western society. As God’s people, the church must imagine and embody an alternative that cultivates shalom between individuals, within and between communities, between humans and the rest of creation, and with God.

This conference is one way we will engage in a theology that cares for God’s creation, for the land and all that lives on it. We invite pastors, scholars, creation care advocates and practitioners to join the discussion.
